Just Add Sweet Royalty: Time for Sharing

I just got some die cuts from Memory Box - they came yesterday and Just Add Ink's challenge for this week is Just Add Die Cuts - it's meant to be!!



There are two other challenges out there this week that I had to play!  Stampin' Royalty has a great color challenge that adds purple in with fall colors - adding purple (or blue) to oranges/yellows is always fabulous. 

The Sweetest Thing has a sketch challenge that I really needed.  My Cuttlebug will not cut one small part of this die even with multiple shims - so this sketch allowed me to cut that part off!  (FYI: Memory Box dies are really intricate and gorgeous and I do have great luck with them using my Big Shot, but my Big Shot is buried in my scrapbook room under old sheets while I am paying my teenager to take down a wallpaper border.  Sounded like a great idea - just didn't know that it would take months!)



  • Stamps: Hero Arts (a REALLY old stamp - it's in the first few pages of my stamp index which makes it more than a decade old!)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up More Mustard, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla CS and So Saffron dsp
  • Ink: Stampin' Up More Mustard
  • Accessories: Memory Box Wreath die, Nestabilities Circle die, Family Treasures leaf punch, Stampin' Up Scallop border punch, misc ribbon

What an interesting colour combo and it really works, love the wreath die, the detail on them is what makes them so appealing isn't it!
